Snacking has been a slight challenge with whole food eating and young children. They've been great about eating fruit and veggies for snacks almost all the time, but a new favorite is absolutely popcorn.
The kids like it simple: melted butter and a sprinkle of salt. While I too can appreciate this approach, I am a huge fan of herbed popcorn as well. Is it more sophisticated? Maybe, but I doubt it. It is, however, delicious.
First, air pop the popcorn. If you don't have an air popper you can use this tutorial to pop your corn in the microwave using a plain old paper bag.
Next, put the popcorn in a paper bag and drizzle on some olive oil, sea salt, dill and garlic powder (not pictured) to taste. (Peanut oil can be substituted for olive oil if you prefer.) Just a dash of each is fine, but I like about 3 tsp of dill.
Yes, the stuff in the baby food jar in this photo is dill I dried from our herb garden. It's good to keep dried herbs in glass containers.
